Alero 3.4L V6

It's bullshit. I bought this car used at a buy here pay here. I test drove it and it seemed like a really good car. The low engine coolant light came on so I figured that it needed coolant in it. It was 4 days since I had got the car and put coolant in it and the day after I did it f*cked up on me. What the f*ck. Here is the sh*t kicker. Superior Auto sold this car to me without even looking it over first or asking me if I wanted them to look at it. How stupid is that. I really don't f*cking care because they are not going to be happy with me tomorrow when I go in there and it's not going to be pretty.
